Participants will get the chance to experience ongoing innovation at our North America Labs, especially on topics related to smart cities and to the role of light in productivity and workplace wellbeing. First, the Atlas of Lighting, a joint collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, provides a data-based scientific view of social and economic dynamics of metropolitan areas around the world.

Second, there will be a lighting simulation based on the MIT CityScope project, which is an interactive decision support system for urban development. Third, we will demo a Department of Energy that contributes to personal and organizational goals for workplace wellbeing. It is based on an aggressive energy saving, capable of variable modulation of intensity, distribution, and spectrum of lighting in order to support diverse visual and non-visual needs. 
Our focus on cities stems from the global trend for urbanization, the ubiquitous presence of lighting – with approximately 500 million street lights installed in public spaces globally, and the massive opportunity that connected lighting can bring to our cities. Currently less than 1% of all our global street lights are connected or intelligent. With the emergence of big data, the Internet of Things and connected, digital lighting, we’re bringing much more intelligent functionality into our lighting systems – lighting will go beyond illumination.
